Say cheese! On Saturday, Victoria Beckham revealed that her son Brooklyn is set to soon attend a photography course in New York City. The fashion designer took to her Instagram page to share the exciting announcement alongside one of Brooklyn’s photographs from his upcoming book, What I See. Clearly proud, the 43-year-old star chose to post one of the first images Brooklyn ever snapped.

Victoria wrote: “So proud of @brooklynbeckham. Some of the earliest images taken with his first camera out in print next week #whatisee off to study photography in NY soon #stilllearning#justthebeginning #proudmum@christiesinc All for a great cause #grenfell X VB.” It seems the book sales will in some way benefit the victims of the awful Grenfell Tower incident.
The former Spice Girls singer was met with a flood of well wishes from her fans. One commented: “Congrats to your son! Amazing!” While a second wrote: “Excellent work! Be proud!!!! This is a beautiful shot!!” There were compliments for Victoria too, with a fan telling the star: “I'm so inspired of you, Victoria! It's magic how you can manage to cope with the business, family and personal growth! And being successful everywhere!” Earlier in the week, Brooklyn himself took to Instagram, excitedly sharing a pic of him posing with a first copy of his book and the caption: "Look what just arrived... so excited #whatisee is finally here. Can't wait to meet some of you next week at signings, who's coming?"

Brooklyn’s dad, David Beckham, previously opened up to GQ about his son’s work, saying: “So far we've been very lucky that he's found a passion. Whether people believe it or not, he's got talent. He's got a great eye—and proven that in the images he's taken." Brooklyn's upcoming photography book, What I See, will be released on June 29. The book is a collection that simultaneously showcases his photography skills, while telling his life story. Brooklyn, who has previously photographed a Burberry campaign, included personal photos like a family holiday with his parents and three younger siblings – Romeo, Cruz and Harper – as well as a series of photographs chronicling his everyday activities.
